back into recession, a prospect nobody wants. we have this report from nevada. >> are these the first signs of recovery for the construction industry in las vegas? it is not what it seems. she is not building, she is toward writing. there is plenty of land and spare machinery for a business renting diggers by the hour. >> it is sad the way the construction industry died. it was overnight. nobody expected it. i think people are waiting it out, but i think people are all looking for other avenues rather than stay in construction. i think there are reinventing themselves right now because they have to. >> down the road, another far less glamorous site of vegas, a free food line. here.jackie's first time she lost her house and everything in a just two years before the mortgage was all. michael is well qualified, but surviving. he's putting his passion into the pawn shop. >> fortunately, i was able to put on my music equipment. now have to do something for december. i have to save up money. it is difficult. >> it will get worse. unless the new the reelected president and political leaders
deposited in utah. this yea a couple of months ago, in nevada we found the largest oil deposit they think ever on record. they think it rivals if not passes saudi arabia. from what i read the statis it beings u.s. on line by 2017 to 2020 to surpass saudi arabiain the production of oil and gas to supply the world. melissa: you're talk about fracking and talking about shale. that is good poi. does this make the case for shale and fracking when you at the same time we're hearing about the bp settlement? wee remind of a story, 4.5 dal billion in fines at the same time we're looking at photos like this, that maybe while it is obviously a vote for offshore drilling, does it encourage more onshore shale and fcking? >> i would think yes because if there were a spill it could absolutely be contained right there. we ca continue the spill on land and it is not, it doesn't spill the way they do fracking. the process is such, really only spillageater they're using, some steam to clean it up. of course it is not enviroentally perfect and i'm not saying it is but we have to save the american way.
